Sleepy smoothies make mornings so much easier. Throw ingredients in a jar, shake, leave overnight, sleep, blend, enjoy! The combination of basil and mango is so refreshing and light. Inspired by my growing collection of sleepy smoothies
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • ¾ cup mango – fresh or frozen
  • ½ banana
  • 1.5 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3 tablespoon gluten-free rolled oats
  • 2 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chia seed
  1. To be made the night before you plan on eating it, or at least 4 hours in advance.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a glass container [I like to use mason jars and give it a quick shake] and place in the fridge overnight.
  3. In the morning, pour ingredients into blender and process until smooth.
I’ve had people tell me they blend all of the ingredients the night before, then let it sit overnight [say if you have a roommate that doesn’t like the sound of a blender waking them up at 4am].

If you need added protein, don’t be afraid to add protein powder to the mix before letting it sit overnight.
